Developer's Description

As long as you can drag something outside your source application you can use it as input for DropPy. On top of direct interaction being more intuitive this also gives you a way to access objects that scripts from Terminal are not able to address. The object you drop usually contains data in many different formats, categorized by UTIs (Uniform Type Identifiers). DropPy pulls out everything that's available to give you full flexibility for what you want to do. DropPy passes all extracted files through a series of Python scripts called Tasks. Their order and parameters are set in a JSON file and form a Workflow. Tasks are specifically written to do one thing only. This reduces complexity and makes them easy to reuse and share. Most Tasks are just a few lines long.

DropPy comes bundled with a large set of Workflows and Tasks to start you off and to serve as examples for your own custom solutions. DropPy's Development Mode assists you in quickly writing your own Tasks and Workflows. Buttons to re-drop the previous object, to open the last log file and to open the temp dir allow for rapid iterations. Python 2.7 comes pre-installed in macOS Sierra and High Sierra. But you can add any number of other interpreters like Python 3, Anaconda or PyPy - or use Virtual Environments with DropPy. DropPy occasionally checks for updates by contacting download.droppyapp.com. That's it. And even this can be disabled. There are no in-app-analytics that spy on you and no crash-reporting-service that leaks your data.
